I Love Transit Night!

After much searching, we’ve found a venue for I Love Transit Night! This year, it will be on July 14 at Bamboo Cafe across the street from the Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain station. It’s a laid back place that’s popular in the community and ideal for fun transit games and mingling for the like-minded.

The night is part of I Love Transit Week taking place July 11-15! This is a week to celebrate what we love about transit.

Bamboo Cafe

Bamboo Cafe, just outside of Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain Station

There will be some food (you’ll be responsible for your own drinks), fun, games and prizes during I Love Transit Night. Transit fans of all ages are welcome, and we expect to have a bus on hand to play games (more on that very soon). Tell your friends. It’s going to be great! Here’s the info:

    I think we had over 100 people show up at last year’s New Westminster site…. expect crush loads for this event, especially when the free food comes out. The wings were delish!

    Is it too late to change the location? I would like to see a more central location. Vancouver is quite far to the west of the regional district.

    Hi Eugene:

    I tried to find a location that wasn’t too far West like on Commercial Drive (location for the first I Love Transit Night) and could accommodate all our needs. Hopefully you make it !

    Ah…. Couldn’t make it this year….. Maybe next time :)
